The holidays are around the corner and so is the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival Of Lights starting November 21st. To kick off the celebration, Niagara Falls will be lighting the city up with thousands of dazzling sparkling lights on land, across the Niagara Parkway and around the city. We too are celebrating the 33rd annual festival for the first time with our Falls Fireworks Cruises operating Saturday, November 21st with the boat departures at 6:25pm and fireworks at 6:45pm and the second boat departure at 7:25pm with fireworks at 7:45pm. We’re continuing the Falls Fireworks with a third cruise on November 27th with boat departure at 8:30pm and fireworks at 9pm. You might be thinking, ‘brrr it’s cold outside for a cruise’ but we’re promising you all the right reasons why you don’t want to miss out on this cruise this time of the year.
